'SNL': Jeremy Renner Pays Homage to 'Pretty Woman' in New Promos (Video)
Jeremy Renner drops by Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live this weekend and though he may be known for being "badass" and "intense" in the movies, in real life, not so much.
At least, that's what is uncovered in new promos for his first SNL gig.
The Bourne Legacy star shows cast member Kenan Thompson just how "easy" it is to communicate intensity through just the simple, brooding look complete with accompanying music. Let's just say, Thompson isn't quite successful.
Next, Renner -- who appears in the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters -- reveals his less manly side when a "mouse" threatens his personal space, consoles Thompson after a failed attempt at downing a shot and a secret government plot that Renner may (or may not) be a part of. And, yup, there's even an homage to Pretty Woman.
Watch the promos below:
Renner hosts this Saturday with musical guest Maroon 5.
